Shelswell W.I. was formed in 1990, by a small group of local women who decided there was a need for a WI to cater for younger women. We continue to attract a younger age group and those young at heart, who prefer a more relaxed, informal atmosphere. Members come from all the surrounding villages and also from Bicester.
We are a friendly, lively group of women from varied backgrounds who enjoy a monthly get together to hear a speaker and socialise with friends.
The group meets on the first Thursday of each month at 8pm in Fringford Village hall (unless stated otherwise)
It’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends. We’d love to see you.
Visitors may come for two complimentary meetings and then are invited to join and become fully paid up members.
We invite visitors to make a donation of £4, and we all pay £1 for refreshments.
Just come to the next meeting or for further information contact Elaine Whittaker 07917 453224
Annual subscription for 2021 is £33, due in April 2021.
